Donald Trump | The Guardian: Is Trump about to repeat George W Bush’s worst mistake? | Michael Fuchs

In 2002, Bush used his UN speech to argue for action against Iraq. Lets hope Trumps first UN speech isnt the opening salvo in a preventable war with Iran

In 2003, the United States initiated perhaps the greatest strategic disaster in US history by diverting attention from a necessary war in Afghanistan to an unnecessary war in Iraq. The Iraq war resulted in hundreds of thousands dead and wounded, untold economic catastrophe, states in the Middle East in complete ruin, and the rise of Isis all while the effort to go after terrorists in Afghanistan languished.

President Donald Trumps first speech before the United Nations General Assembly this week made clear that Trump wants to take America down a similar path by diverting much-needed attention from North Korea to starting an unnecessary conflict with Iran.

Confirmed: Paul Manafort caught on wiretap colluding with Russia on Donald Trumps behalf during election

Monday was an almost incalculably bad day for Paul Manafort, who was confirmed to have been under secret wiretap before and after the election, and is about to be indicted. But Tuesday has turned out to be an arguably even worse day for Manafort, based on what’s subsequently been revealed about that wiretap. It’s also just about the worst news possible for Donald Trump.

The latest revelation comes by way of CBS News, which is now confirming that Paul Manafort discussed the Donald Trump campaign with the Russians during the election (link). It’s still not being reported what Manafort and Russia specifically said to each other. But this amounts to collusion one way or the other. As has been pointed out by various legal experts, “collusion” is not a legal term; it simply means two parties are working together for nefarious purposes. But Special Counsel Robert Mueller already has the tapes of the Manafort-Russia conversations, so he knows precisely what was said. He also presumably knows what Manafort subsequently said to Trump about those conversations.

That’s where the problem comes in for Donald Trump. His own campaign chairman has now been caught colluding with the Russians about the election, on behalf of the campaign, during the election. On some level the burden will now fall on Trump to demonstrate that he somehow didn’t know his own campaign chair was taking these actions. If it turns out Trump did know, he’s on the hook legally for whatever it is that Manafort and Russia were specifically plotting.

There is also the matter of the court of public opinion. If Donald Trump can’t convince the general public that he didn’t know Paul Manafort was colluding with the Russians on behalf of the campaign, he’ll be presumed guilty by the American people. In the end, the damage to his approval rating may determine the swiftness of his ouster.

Trump attorney Michael Cohen has officially pissed off the Senate, and now theyre coming for him

As Donald Trump’s Russia scandal has gradually enveloped his staff, his associates, and even his family, one of the key questions has been who will flip on him in exchange for leniency, who will purposely decide to spitefully go down in flames, and who will dumbly get tripped up and be left with no choice but to flip. Based on what we just witnessed, it appears longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen is now facing Choice B or Choice C.

Cohen agreed to voluntarily testify about his role in the Trump-Russia scandal for the Senate Intelligence Committee, with the stipulation that it be in private. The Senate agreed, because it was easier than dragging him through the subpoena process, but on the condition that Cohen not speak publicly about his testimony. The trouble: just before Cohen’s scheduled testimony on Tuesday morning, after he was already in the building, he released a last minute statement to the media. In return, the Senate dropped the hammer on him.

The Senate Intel Committee decided to immediately send Cohen home without testifying, and announced that it will now only allow him to testify in public (link). It also announced that it’s subpoenaing him to force him to come back and testify in public (link). This isn’t merely an attempt at punishing Cohen by making him dodge questions on live national television. It’s all about who else will be watching that testimony.

Some Trump-Russia figures have only agreed to testify before Congress privately, because they don’t want Special Counsel Robert Mueller having access to it. He’ll subpoena them to come in and answer his own questions when he’s ready to. But in the mean time, because Michael Cohen just screwed up and gave the Senate an opening to force him to testify publicly, it means Mueller will be watching that day. If Cohen screws up and gives anything away, it’ll put Mueller that much further ahead in the game.

Reports of feuding between Robert Mueller and Congress are greatly exaggerated

At least once a week, a major media outlet pushes the same old narrative: Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the various congressional committees are feuding about their respective roles in investigating the Trump-Russia scandal, they’re getting in each other’s way, and some big bad scary unspecified thing could be the result. But no matter how many times this narrative gets recycled, there’s still no evidence to back it up. So why do we keep hearing this?

If it were true that Mueller and Congress were stepping on each other’s feet, it would be an important story. And if you look at the available evidence in the wrong context, you might come away with the impression that they’re feuding. As Congress has asked the various Trump-Russia figures to testify, some of them have agreed under the stipulation that their testimony be in private, because they don’t want Mueller to see it. That sounds like a bad thing, until you look at what’s really going on, and you see a different story.

Mueller will bring these folks to come in and answer his questions when he’s ready for them. He’ll have a judge sign off on a subpoena compelling that testimony, meaning they won’t get a choice. So Mueller will have his way with these witnesses and suspects. In the meantime, there’s no harm to Congress bringing them in for testimony that Mueller won’t have access to. It’s better for that to happen, then for them to clam up and not testify before Congress at all. In addition, there are some tangential benefits in this process for Mueller.

We’ve already seen Mueller have the FBI raid Paul Manafort’s house just hours after his congressional testimony. Mueller must have found some way to get word of what Manafort said, because it was enough to inform him to make an immediate move. Then there’s the case of Michael Cohen, who violated his testimony agreement with Senate by blabbing to the media. As a result the Senate is now moving to compel him to testify publicly, meaning Mueller will get to watch it from home.

So why do so many news outlets keep pushing the narrative that Robert Mueller and Congress are feuding or sabotaging each other? The cynical answer would be that it makes for a juicy story and a great ratings opportunity. In all fairness, it would be an important story if it were true.

The real reason Rod Rosenstein is refusing to recuse himself in the Trump-Russia investigation

Last night the news broke that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has been interviewed as a witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s obstruction investigation into Donald Trump. That led to immediate questions about why Rosenstein is still refusing to recuse himself from the investigation. Under almost any other circumstances, he certainly would step aside. But these aren’t normal circumstances.

Rosenstein only came to oversee the Trump-Russia investigation after his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, got caught lying about his own role in the scandal and had to recuse himself. Trump then went on to fire FBI Director James Comey in an attempt at sabotaging the investigation. Rosenstein was a witness to that firing, creating a potential conflict. But there are two reasons why Rosenstein isn’t recusing himself. One is technical, and the other is pragmatic.

The minute Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, authority over the investigation was transferred from Rosenstein to Mueller. At this point Rosenstein only has the power to fire or not fire Mueller and nothing more. The only valid reason to fire Mueller would be some sort of criminal conduct on his part, such as conducting the investigation in an illegal manner, or going out and robbing banks in his spare time. Because none of that’s happening, there’s no question about whether Mueller needs to be fired. Therefore, there’s no actual conflict of interest when it comes to Rosenstein having firing authority over Mueller. But there’s a much more important reason why Mueller wouldn’t want Rosenstein to recuse himself.

If Rod Rosenstein were to recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation, someone named Rachel Brand would inherit the authority to fire or not fire Robert Mueller. Little is known about what she would do in that situation, but she was hand picked by Trump, so there’s reason to fear the worst. So no matter how convoluted this might become, as long as Rosenstein refuses to recuse himself, Mueller remains on the job and that’s the part that matters.
